Despite the efforts of Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch to reach a compromise on the Jerusalem Shabbat parking issue, the extremist Eda Haredit organization announced its intention to resume protests Saturday against the opening of the Carta lot. However, the demonstrations will apparently take place solely in Mea She'arim and won't reach the parking lot itself, in accordance with an Eda Haredit senior rabbi's request, Army Radio reported Friday.
